I’d also expect issues and other information to start appearing on his site before long. I like watching sites grow, and this one looks promising.

David Henderson addressed the CA LP convention; his speech is posted at antiwar.com. It’s pretty good.
I saw the first public review of Aaron Russo’s new film at IMDb. Since registration is required, I’ll cut and paste after the jump.
Well, the title as it is, I saw the film “America: From Freedom to Fascism” tonight in Tucson, Arizona. From the moment it begins it is gripping, informative and down right scary! The viewer comes away with an understanding that as good as we might be in our day to day lives, we are all targets of a runaway government, intent on exerting it’s power and expressing it’s will — despite the law.
Particularly chilling is the interview with a Virginia Beach, VA family whose homes and business were raided by the IRS on mere unsubstantiated accusations; the victims of Police State authoritarians. Another interview with a former IRS Commissioner who, now a high-powered D.C. attorney, can’t seem to make the connection between Supreme Court decisions on the Constitutionality of the Income Tax and how the IRS regards “voluntary compliance” with a law he’s unable to articulate. Flustered, the commissioner ends the interview abruptly and asks Russo to leave.
Russo is a bulldog as he prowls halls of government trying to get someone to just show him the Law that says a working citizen in the United States owes an Income Tax, or just to acknowledge prior Supreme Court rulings on the subject. Clips of press conferences and television interviews and news cuttings reveal obfuscation, saber rattling and threats but not one answer that clearly defines the Law, the statutes or the Tax obligations of American citizens.
Aaron Russo has created a compelling and troubling documentary that indeed gives the impression that America has already moved from Freedom to Fascism (and defines the terms so the viewer can decide for themselves).
The film is in the final stages of post-production and upon completion will be entered at Cannes in May. It is sure to make the headlines there and open more than a few eyes. This film will make an impact on the viewer — It’s up to the viewer to then make an impact on the state of affairs in American government.
